Donald Madden, The Shakespearean Great no one knows!
Donald Madden appears in parts one and two of Shaw VS Shakespeare. It is fitting that he took part in these segments since he was a well respected Shakespearean stage actor in the late 50's and early 60's. It is a rare glimpse of his talent since his stage worked was not filmed. Attention should be paid to his scenes in part two. He was a master at his craft!
